A loving relationship between partners should consist of two things: love and respect. These should never be forgotten. There are a lot of examples of truly healthy relationships, where both partners communicate, show respect and affection. They work hard in order to keep the relationship in good-standing.
Sadly, there are also a lot of relationships that cannot be compared with the aforementioned relationship. There must be an early signs of dysfunction in every destructive relationship. For women, these signs should be deal breakers that scream “Don’t Marry Him!”. The four biggest deal breaker should be:
Temper and Violence – In this case violence does not have to become physical in order to set off alarms. If a man is predisposed to excessive verbal outbursts and physical actions, for example, destroying property, it might be nothing more than a matter of time before that violence is turned towards his partner in the form of physical abuse. The worst of all is that temper and violence tend to escalate and cannot be easily fixed without professional psychological help.
Infidelity – “Once a cheater, always a cheater”. If your man cheated in the previous relationships or cheats early within the existing one, then the necessary love and respect are not present.The situation will become worse.
Addiction – Highly destructive behavioral problems are:drug abuse, alcoholism, sex addiction and compulsive gambling.They tend to take down anything in its path. The truth is that most addicts need professional help.
Possessive Behavior – If a man shows signs of extreme jealousy and ownership over his partner, then he has problems with his self-esteem and has little confidence. A man that is mentally healthy will understand a woman’s need for social interaction. Sadly, possessive behavior is the cause for rage and violence.
In a case your partner shows any of these signs, you should move on and find the healthy relationship you deserve. The right man is the one who is trying to focus on his problems, in order to become the man you really want and need.
